On average it will take 90x 40 lb

**bags**, 60x 60 lb**bags**, or 45x 80 lb**bags**to fill one cubic**yard**of**concrete**. Add 5%-10% additional material to account forsettling, spillage, and waste.Just so, how many 80lb bags of concrete are in a yard?

A **80 lb**. **bag** provides 0.6 cubic feet ofcured **concrete**. If you have **concrete** delivered it issold by the **yard** (which is a cubic **yard** = 27 cubicfeet).

Secondly, how many bags of concrete will I need? For **concrete**, the formula for volume is asfollows: length x width x thickness. To determine **how many bagsof concrete** you **will need**, divide the total cubic yardsneeded by the yield. Use the following yields per each **bag**size: 40 pound **bag** yields .011 cubic yards.
